    Answer:

    x = 1.875

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1:  Distribute

    1/2x + 3/2(x + 1) – 1/4 = 5

    1/2x + 3/2x + 3/2 – 1/4 = 5

    Step 2:  Combine like terms

    4/2x + 6/4 – 1/4 = 5

    2x + 5/4 = 5

    Step 3:  Subtract 5/4 from both sides

    2x + 5/4 – 5/4 = 5 – 5/4

    2x = 3.75

    Step 4:  Divide both sides by 2

    2x / 2 = 3.75 / 2

    x = 1.875

    Answer:  x = 1.875
